    about how Silent Spring was meant to be a warning, not an instruction manual...

    I've been worried about this since the beginning of Oil Hell. Here in the Northeast we are almost entirely without bats due to White Nose Syndrome, and bees due to Colony Collapse Disorder. What will even a minor crash in the bird population do to the already insulted biosphere?
    I'm betting the insects will benefit in the short term, and then they will suffer, too. Birds are seed spreaders, of course, so their absence will affect food supplies throughout the food chain.

    But apparently a judge in LA seems to think the drilling moratorium is too much to ask of an industry that has loosed this upon us all by whoopsie...

    The Republican Party will never die until there is a new political home for racists.
